@AmonHouston: it's weird but this is somewhat related to what the bombcast talks about all the time.
example: how for some people Mario Sunshine will be there first mario game...and that's totally fine. for you Halo was probably not your first game but when you played it, it connected with you unlike any game before it. i think that's pretty cool.
now the more i think about it i would wanna get something from SNES era. I really dug 8/16 bit music from that era. it seems that for me, the music has had a very lasting impression on me all these years. sadly, it would be hard to reflect that with an image aka tattoo.
there was a great comment about tattoos on reddit, but sadly its down right now so i cannot pull the quote. but there's a sentiment that a tattoo reflects who you are/were as a person at that precise moment. it likes a photograph, in a sense. a snapshot frozen in time. no matter how hard we try we cannot deny who we are and what we've experienced (for good or for awesome).
i have two tattoos. not gaming related ones, but its not out of the question. if i were to get one it would have to be from a game that either left a significant impression or is from an era when gaming as a whole meant alot to me.
the last game that really moved me was MGS4 and the idea that snake was doing one last mission despite being a broken down man. i dont know what one could get...maybe that fox logo with the two lightning rods (i think that's what it is).
huh...now you got me thinking about gaming tattoos....
